Well, I discovered mine is leaking too now.  Spraying right onto the
valve cover.  I noticed a brief fuel smell a couple times for the past
few days.  This morning after I left the house I smelled it again and
pulled over and had a look.  WHOA!  Looks like the clamp has loosened
or something.

Since I already have some kind of rubber hose and clamp repair, altho'
I don't know if the clamps are the right kind, I'm thinking I just
want to put the OEM piece in there.

Brett, do you have a part number for that part you ordered?

There IS a rubberized high-pressure fuel line available in several ID
sizes.  They use special hoseclamps designed to compress reliably around a
specific OD.  FLAPS would be a source.
